As Secretary Duncan announced at the Grantmakers for Education Conference, there are multiple ways that private funders can support innovation in education.
In May 2010, Grantmakers for Education convened funders from across the country along with prominent researchers, higher education leaders and officials from the U.S.
"Benchmarking 2009: Trends in Education Philanthropy" is Grantmakers for Education's (GFE) second annual study of grantmaking trends and priorities among members.
Recognizing that a grantmaker is effective only when its grantees are effective, this case study is intended to help funders consider ways of promoting "effective grantees," one of Grantmakers for Education's Principles for Effective Education Grantmaking.
Confronting two unhealthy approaches that surface frequently in philanthropy--the tendency for grantmakers to think they alone have all the answers and the tensions that arise when national and local funders try to work together--this case study is intended to help grantmakers think more deeply about the concept of "engaged partners," one of Grantmakers for Education's Principles for Effective Education Grantmaking.
Through Grantmakers for Education's (GFE's) "Benchmarking 2008" research report, the researchers sought to make the act of sharing among GFE members as easy and worthwhile as possible.

Foundation leaders encouraged the Council on Foundations and Grantmakers for Education to convene a joint discussion to examine the commission's findings, debate its recommendations and consider its implications for grantmakers.
A key part of Grantmakers for Education's program portfolio to improve education philanthropy, the biannual Education Grantmakers Institute provides an especially unique and effective venue for strengthening the skills and knowledge of grantmakers.
To this end, Grantmakers for Education's Principles for Effective Education Grantmaking identifies "innovation" and "constant learning" as a core principle for achieving results in education philanthropy.
Grantmakers for Education brought together grantmakers, educators and advocates for a two-day briefing entitled "Making the Most of Our Investments: How PK-3 Alignment Can Close the Achievement Gap from the Start." Presentations, group discussions and a site visit addressed the following key issues: (1) The research and policy context for PK-3 systems; (2) Strategies for successfully aligning prekindergarten with the K-3 system; (3) PK-3 alignment in action--what does it look like on the ground?; and (4) Advancing PK-3 systems through grantmaking--what are the leverage points for funders?
In February 2006, a Grantmakers for Education member briefing brought together grantmakers, American Indian educators, directors of innovative Native educational programs and scholars to discuss cultural and educational issues in Indian Country and appropriate strategies for grantmaking.
